Petrex Developments, the Subsea Engineering and Project Management Specialist, has recently been awarded a five figure contract from Maersk Oil North Sea (UK) Ltd to provide support to the Leadon Decommissioning Programme.

The Leadon field is situated in block 9/14 of the North Sea, approximately 190 miles North – North-East of Aberdeen in a water depth of 120m and was acquired by Maersk Oil in 2005 with cessation of production granted in 2006. Some preparation work has already been undertaken for decommissioning of the Leadon facilities, with the FPSO and associated mooring system removed and reused at the Donan development in 2006 and the flexible risers recovered and disposed of in 2007, whilst other works continue in the North Sea.
